Where Is The Snow?

Cochituate, Massachusetts

I hate shoveling it, driving in it and walking the dog in it....So why am I so depressed about not having any snow in Boston yet this winter? This photo was taken a few winters ago.

Stepford Wives

Boston, Massachusetts
Last weekend I met up with some dog rescue friends who were volunteering at an outreach booth at a big fancy dog show.
Being involved with rescue you learn to appreciate each individual, yet imperfect snowflake of a dog for exactly what they are. Most of which were badly bred or a mix of who-knows-who-your-daddy-was.
The whole idea of breeding dogs to look exactly alike kind of creeps me out.

Cochituate, Massachusetts
I'd really like to say that she's staring out that window waiting for me to come home.
Truth is, she's honed in on a squirrel's ass halfway up the tree outside the window.

Thank You!

Cochituate, Massachusetts
Wayland Boy Scout Troop 1 of Cochituate show their gratitude to the community for the outpouring of donations they received after the theft of 50 of their fund-raising Christmas trees.
Police report that someone stole $2000.00 worth of Christmas trees from the troop's tree stand next to the Methodist church late last Saturday night. Once the news got out, several area landscapers and nurseries donated new trees and local residents donated thousands of dollars to the troop.
The sale of the trees is the troop's only fund-raiser and it pays for various hiking and camping trips throughout the year.
Police have no solid leads in the case.
What kind of person sneaks up to a church and steals Christmas trees from Boy Scouts?!

Want to know the story behind it?
Maybe it's funnier without the explanation.
